Xenserver - Windows 2008 - Only see 4 processors
Posted on 2009-04-14
Running xenserver 5 update 3 on a test Dell Poweredge 2950 with 2 quad core processors, I am only able to see up to a maximum of four processors within either windows 2003 server or windows 2008 server standard.
I understand proc limitations on standard are per socket thus should be able to see 8
I can confirm that looking at memeory and vcpu settings I have assigedn 8 vcpus for both machines in question.
What am I missing here ?
Chose xen over esxi becuase it allows up to maximum of 8 vcpus, but now am back at square one.
Greatly appreciate any advice
